Mayor Michael Victorino today expressed his appreciation to the Land Use Commission for its approval of a request by Waikapu Properties to amend conditions now covered by a public-private partnership between the County of Maui and the developer.
At its Wednesday meeting, the Land Use Commission unanimously approved Waikapu Properties’ petition to amend conditions so that Maui County may assume the developer’s required contribution toward a new Central Maui wastewater treatment plant, Waiale Road extension and improvements in exchange for 213 additional workforce units in the planned Waikapu Country Town community.
“The LUC’s approval gives Waikapu Properties a green light to move ahead with plans to build 1,500 new, single-family, multifamily and rural units,” Mayor Victorino said. “I’m happy to say that not a single commissioner opposed our agreement. This is a testament to Waikapu Partners’ willingness to support our local community with additional construction of needed workforce housing.”
Last month, the Maui County Council approved the public-private partnership agreement. As a result of the agreement, Waikapu Country Town development will build an additional 213 affordable workforce housing units, for a total of 500, as part of its planned community in Central Maui.
